School response to the Covid-19 outbreak 

Compass School has been open from the 2nd June for the children of critical workers and pupils who are vulnerable. Then subsequently, we made on-site provision for year 10 pupils to have face to face session with their teachers before the summer holiday. The school made provision to support pupils and their families during the lock-down period to ensure the continuity of their education, their safety and well-being.

Attendance from September

The school will welcome all pupils back in September 2020 and have made arrangements to do so safely in line with DfE guidance. From the start of the Autumn term 2020 pupil attendance will be mandatory and the usual rules on attendance will apply, including:​

  • parents’ duty to ensure that their child of compulsory school age attends regularly at the school where the child is a registered pupil
  • schools’ responsibilities to record attendance and follow up absence
  • the ability to issue sanctions, including fixed penalty notices, in line with local authorities’ codes of conduct
